A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is an integral factor in a child's life in foster care. Children in foster care that have a CASA volunteer spend an average of 8 months less in foster care. You can make that difference happen with just a little of your time each month.

As a volunteer your basic requirements are just a few! You will be expected to:

  • Visit your assigned foster child(ren) a minimum of once a month.
  • Write recommendations for court hearings, usually held approximately every three-six months.
  • Attend the court hearings, if possible, to support your foster child.

There are plenty of children that need you in Walton County!

Orientation consists of 30 hours of classroom training plus 10 hours of courtroom observation.
